​Long, Long Time

This song is by Mindy McCready and appears on the album If I Don't Stay The Night (1997).

Love will abide,
Take things in stride,
Sounds like good advice, but there's no one by my side,
And time washes clean,
Love's wounds I've seen,
That's what someone told me,
But I don't know what it means.

Because I've done everything I know,
To try and make you mine,
And I think I'm going to love you, for a long, long time.

Caught in my fears,
Blinking back the tears,
I can't say you hurt me, when you never let me near,
And I never drew one response from you
All the while you fell for all the girls you never knew

Because I've done everything I know
To try and make you mine,
And I think it's going to hurt me, for a long, long time.

Wait for the day, you'll go away,
Knowing that you warned me of the price I have to pay,
And life's full of loss,
Who knows the cause,
Living in the memory of a love that never was.

Because, I've done everything I know
To try and change your mind
And I think I'm going to miss you, for a long, long time.

Because, I've done everything I know
To try and make you mine,
And I think I'm going to love you, for a long, long time.
